Oregon Student Safety Video Contest Entries Sought

Participants are encouraged to develop a key message or slogan, use humor, and get creative while emphasizing ways to protect themselves and their co-workers from being hurt on the job.

Oregon high school students are invited to enter "Speak up. Work safe." annual video contest now under way in the state, a contest trying to raise awareness about safety on the job for young workers. The top three entries will win cash prizes ranging from $300 to $500 and a matching amount for the wining students' schools.

Students must create a video that is 90 seconds long or less and inspires young workers to do at least one thing differently to stay safe on the job. The video must include the theme "Speak up. Work safe." and must educate young workers about the importance of speaking up in the workplace.

Specific guidelines are outlined in the contest rules. Detailed information, including tips, rules, entry forms, workplace safety and young worker resources, and a playlist of past finalist videos are available at youngemployeesafety.org/contest/.

Participants are encouraged to develop a key message or slogan, use humor, and get creative while emphasizing ways to protect themselves and their co-workers from being hurt on the job.

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2017. Contest winners will be unveiled at a screening event in spring 2017, and winning entries will be posted on YouTube.

The Oregon Young Employee Safety Coalition (O[yes]) organizes the contest. The sponsors are Oregon OSHA, SAIF Corporation, local Oregon chapters of the American Society of Safety Engineers, the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at OHSU, the SHARP Alliance, the Central Oregon Safety & Health Association, the SafeBuild Alliance, Hoffman Construction, and Construction Safety Summit.​
